There will be a debate and reception for an advanced and graduate painting/drawing student exhibition entitled “Beauty & the Abject...A Dialectic”. The show is based on student commentary concerning British philosopher Roger Scruton’s beliefs that there exists a loss of beauty in 21st century art and culture. (featured on the BBC film, “Why Beauty Matters” http://documentaryaddict.com/Why+Beauty+Matters-542-documentary.html ). Come listen to the discussions from 5-5:40 pm, and enjoy a reception at the Third Floor Gallery this Thursday, December 5, from 5 to 5:40 pm (reception runs till 7 pm). Questions? Email Dr. Jean Gallagher email@example.com
A drop-in retirement celebration in honor of Valerie Peck, who has worked as faculty in the School of Social Work at Chico State for 12 years, will be held on Wednesday, December 11th, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Colusa Hall 110.
Students, faculty, staff, families, and administration are invited to the Colusa Hall Art Opening for the Honors Beauty course on Wednesday, December 11th, from 7-8:30pm. The Honors Program was redesigned for Fall 2013, and it features four multidisciplinary seminars, Beauty, Truth, Virtue and Nature. This Fall, the Beauty and Nature seminars have launched, and the work featured by students this Wednesday is from students in the Beauty Seminar who are in conversation with great thinkers and writers about beauty and its relationship to nature, abstraction, death, terror, and longing, amongst other themes. Students will be presenting in mediums as diverse as dance, sculpture, poetry, photography, and painting.
Please come: Colusa Hall 100, 7pm-8:30pm, Wednesday, December 11th

This is the best internship opportunity to intern on Capitol Hill! Each CSU campus sends one outstanding undergraduate student to intern in Washington, D.C. with a member of the House of Representatives from California. All program costs and living expenses are paid by the Panetta Institute. Information and application materials can be found at www.csuchico.edu/pols. Questions? Contact Professor Dwyre at email@example.com.
There are two important changes for spring 2014 registration:
- the registration add/drop period for spring 2014 will begin on Monday December 30, 2013 (not January 2, 2014 as previously published)
- undergraduate students will be allowed to enroll in up to 21 units on December 30, 2013, meaning freshmen, sophomores and juniors will no longer be limited to 18 units
As you may recall, we temporarily reduced the unit limits for freshman, sophomores and juniors beginning fall 2012 in response to a request from the Chancellor’s Office for all CSU’s to limit student unit ceilings.
We are asking students to check their class schedule beginning December 30, as they may have moved from waitlist to enrolled when unit limits are reset to the previously established levels.
If you have questions please contact Office of the Registrar. Our staff will be available on December 30 when add/drop begins for spring 2014.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship provides students with financial need with up to $5,000 to apply to their study abroad program costs. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the program aims to diversify the students who study abroad and the countries and regions where they go. Recipients must be receiving a federal Pell Grant, and preference is given to students in nontraditional study-abroad countries, students with diverse ethnic backgrounds and students with disabilities.
The complete release is available on the CSU, Chico News website.
AS Sustainability has decided to hold one more FREE compost workshop on December 7th! It is the last one of the semester, and a great way to reduce stress.
Come learn about basic composting techniques, including hot composting and vermi-culture. Organic gardening concepts will also be taught and you can even take home produce from the vegetable patch. No previous experience is needed, and anyone taking this workshop will leave with a foundation in productive cultivation skills.
The Saturday workshop is located between the Yolo tennis courts and the train tracks at 11-12 noon
